China is already a leader in renewable energy but needs to increase its wind and solar capacity to achieve its climate target. A.D. By 2030, China plans to reach more than 1,200 GW of total wind and solar power, Xinhua said.
China has previously pledged 25% of its renewable energy, while wind and solar power will cover 16.5% of China’s energy by 2025.
To achieve its climate goals, China will promote “deep industrial restructuring, clean, low carbon, safe and efficient energy development” and “low carbon carbon transport system”. For Xinhua
